Tiger Woods was understandably trending on Twitter following his victory at the Masters, with many famous names praising the new champion.
For Tiger Woods, the wait is finally over.
The 43-year-old won his 15th major at the Masters on Sunday, ending a streak without success that stretched back to 2008.

Woods is an icon recognised the world over and, unsurprisingly, he was trending on Twitter after his success.
Here, we pick out some of the notable names who reacted after Tiger roared to major glory once again.
Former United States President Barack Obama praised his fellow American’s “excellence, grit and determination” after he claimed a first green jacket since 2005.
